A Recent SANS survey of ICS security practitioners titled Securing Industrial Control Systems – 2017 found that 69% of respondents view threats to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) as high or severe/critical, and 40% state they lack visibility or sufficient supporting intelligence into their ICS networks.
In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, host Shaun Walsh is joined by special guest Eric Cornelius, VP of Innovation at Cylance and certified SANS instructor, to discuss how teams can better perform security assessments or audits of control systems and control system networks and increase visibility into control system cyber assets and configurations.
